Neighbor Discovery Message Hold Times for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Joshua Lee McCartney, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

We present the results of an experimental study designed to understand the impact of neighbor discovery message hold times on network performance measures for a mobile ad hoc network. A physical testbed of pseudo-mobile nodes using the OLSR routing protocol was used for our experiments. We found statistically significant evidence to suggest that setting the neighbor discovery message hold times close to the neighbor discovery message interval time results in the best overall network performance.^
